Women in Science – Fundraising campaign

Our aim is to raise money to refurbish some of our science classrooms. Ready to donate? Click here to make your contribution! 

Research shows that despite significant improvements in the last couple of years, women are still under-represented in science and technology, both in the academic and private sectors.

This is due to the role allocated to women in modern society, as well as prejudices that form glass ceilings while encouraging male presence in the workplace.

At Rustenburg Girls’ High School, we are all about breaking this glass ceiling by revolutionizing the playing field for future female led-industries; the world of science is one area in which we plan to make our mark because, as we know, the future of science is female.

Challenge: we challenge all Alumnae and everyone to help make this a reality by purchasing a “brick” or furniture . 

  • Small brick – R500.00 (10cm x 5cm)
  • Medium brick – R1000.00 (15cm x 7.5cm)
  • Large brick – R10 000.00 (20cm x 10cm)

Or why not sponsor furniture:

  • A desk – R12 500.00
  • A chair – R3500.00
  • The blinds – R1800.00 each
  • the floor – R30000.00 

Depending on the size of the brick you choose to purchase, everyone who donates, no matter how small, will have their name engraved on a Perspex plaque and mounted in the classroom. The size of your contribution determines the size of the Perspex brick.
